The jewelry from candies in silver color are made by Vasiliki Kateri

* The "silver" jewelry refers to the famous silvery of Ioannina.

*  The candies in silver color are used to decorate memorial confections in ceremonies. The parallel here is obvious.

* The most models are volunteers from Drosochori village and e few from Ioannina city. 

* Little girls were photographed with the written consent of their parents, as well as for their posted photos.

Special thanks to all

 

Pamvotis Lake Project

Starring Pamvotis Lake, this project aims to move, to attract interest, to rekindle human consciousness, to invoke the respect of human rights and, in general, to contribute – even in the slightest – so that our world can manage to move in an increasingly healthy orbit. 

Αlso, τhe project is a comment on femicides.For this reason, part of this project is dedicated to the women who drowned along with Κyra Frosini, known as "kallimartyres", emphasizing on the perpetual claim and maintenance of the position of women in the upper and upper layers of society and not at its bottom.

May the legends that will be written in the future have only a joyful aura, so that those who have shaken its waters can sleep quietly!

 

A FEW MORE INFO:

The first part of a multidimensional large-scale project, based on Christina’s Tzialla innovative idea, is planning for the city of Ioannina, focusing on Pamvotis Lake. This modular artistic project is going to disturb its far from stagnant waters, in order to become an institution. It is based on studied forms and expressions of art and focuses mainly on theater, visual arts, literature and folklore.

The overall project is based on two main axes framed by individual innovative actions. One axis concerns an original portrait photography exhibition, on board. The subject, the presentation and the way it interacts are what make it unprecedented and unique. The other axis concerns an innovative tour, a dramatized experiential tour, based on the creation of an atmosphere and interaction with the audience.

 

"Pamvotis Lake Project" is a considerable tool, a new competitive product of culture and tourism with particular emphasis on literary or scholarly tourism, an integral part of our intangible cultural heritage. It is time to focus even more on another important identity element of this place, one of its biggest brands, which is none other than the "Lake of Kyra Frosini"!

What separates today from yesterday is only the surface of the lake freshwater. The connecting link of centuries is therefore its own water, since - as we know - the waters of the lakes are not renewed. The boats, marking a course in its waters, in the imaginary line of their footsteps, write at the same time so many stories of centuries! Stories, which the unwritten rules of water and oral tradition gave them dimensions of "historical myths".
